Polyderis laeva (Say, 1823)  

Bembidium laevum   Say, 1823a: 88. Type locality: "Arlington [Middlesex County], Mass[achusetts]" (neotype label). Neotype (♀), designated by Lindroth and Freitag (1969: 339), in MCZ [# 33057]. Note. Because Say (1823a: 88) used the epithet laevum with the generic name Bembidium   , the specific name derives from the Latin adjective laevus, - a, - um (left, clumsy [figurative]), not from the Latin adjective laevis, - e (smooth). Therefore, used with the feminine generic name Polyderis   , the specific name is laeva, not laevis as used by modern authors.

Bembidium troglodytes   Dejean, 1831: 44. Type locality: «Amérique septentrionale" (original citation). Holotype [by monotypy] in MHNP (Lindroth 1955b: 14). Synonymy established by LeConte (1848: 472), confirmed by Lindroth (1955b: 14).

Tachys congestus   Casey, 1918: 212. Type locality: "Norfolk, Virginia" (original citation). Lectotype (♀), designated by Erwin (1974a: 144), in USNM [# 46962]. Synonymy established by Erwin (1974a: 144).

Tachys unistriatus   Casey, 1918: 212 [primary homonym of Tachys unistriatus   Putzeys, 1876]. Type locality: «Pennsylvania» (original citation). Lectotype (♂), designated by Erwin (1974a: 144), in USNM [# 46963]. Synonymy established by Erwin (1974a: 144).

Tachys rectus   Casey, 1918: 213. Type locality: "Alexandria [Rapides Parish], Louisiana" (original citation). Lectotype (♀), designated by Erwin (1974a: 144), in USNM [# 46961]. Synonymy established by Erwin (1974a: 144).

Tachys flumenalis   Casey, 1918: 213. Type locality: "Vicksburg [Warren County], Mississippi" (original citation). Lectotype (♀), designated by Erwin (1974a: 144), in USNM [# 46964]. Synonymy established by Erwin (1974a: 144).
